National Volunteer Week is a time to celebrate the role volunteers play at organizations across the nation. With their skills, energy, and care, America's volunteers renew our spirit and lend strength to the institutions that respond to our most pressing challenges.

And as we honor those who serve, nonprofits will also open their doors to new audiences who want to make a difference.
There are many ways to get involved during National Volunteer Week. Find the one that is right for you.
